Remute is kicking off 2023 with an ambitious, longtime dream project - a Sega Genesis / Mega Drive adaption of the german counter-cultural cyberpunk cult movie Decoder!
Decoder, released in 1984 and conceived by Klaus Maeck, is roughly based on writings of William S. Burroughs and tells us about a dystopian society ruled by the 'WORLD' corporation who controls the population with hypnotic sounds called 'Muzak'. But there's FM, a clever dissident, who discovers that by decoding the Muzak, riots and revolution against the looming power of WORLD can be incited.
Remute's adaption comes exclusively as a Sega Genesis / Mega Drive cartridge and let's you deeply dive into the thrilling story of Decoder while listening to a brandnew electro soundtrack generated in realtime by the console's soundchip!
For this project Remute teamed up with coder Kabuto and graphic artist Alien who both previously worked with him for his acclaimed albums Technoptimistic and Living Electronics.
Enjoy the Decoder experience and be aware that sounds contol your mind...
Listening on a Sega Mega Drive / Genesis Model 1 is highly recommended, but Model 2 also works - Model 3 and Sega Nomad too. Will also work very well on FPGA-based solutions like Analogue's Mega SG.
It will not work properly on the majority of clone consoles based on emulation.
Cartridge is region-free and will work well and with correct speed on PAL and NTSC.
Includes unlimited streaming of Decoder via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more
